In Your Opinion...

I made a few of these a couple years ago as Christmas gifts. They are bookmarks made of beads and wire. I enjoy making them, but don't have anything to do with them. I mean a person only needs so many bookmarks, no matter how much they read!

I was thinking of maybe putting them on ETSY, which is a website where you can sell hand made goods. What do you think? What I need to know from you is if you think I should do that, and also how much I should charge? I'm not sure.

The wire swirls go in the book, and the beads decorate the spine of the book when its closed.

Let me know what you think, and in the mean time here are a few pictures of the ones I have already made.

I think Etsy is super cool and you should totally go for it!

I have NO IDEA how much to charge... gotta be low enough that people feel like they are getting a good deal and expensive enough that you can make some $$. ...hm... maybe $8? $10? You could always list them and if they don't sell lower the price. Etsy's free, right?

Hey Sarah! I look at your blog sometimes through Meag's to see what you've been up to! I think you should absolutely give Etsy a shot! It cant hurt. I think the book marks you've already made are awesome and people should have the opportunity to buy them! As for what to charge, I guess think about how much you think you spend per book mark and add a few dollars. I wouldnt go over $10 and like Meag said, you can give it a shot at a higher price and go lower if that doesnt work but its a lot harder if you start low to go higher!
